Russia destroyed “all vital infrastructure” in Kherson

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy confirmed on Monday that Russia had destroyed “all vital infrastructure” in parts of the Kherson region, which the Ukrainian army recaptured last week.

And he said Zelenskyj during his daily speech after the liberated Kherson visitMonday: “Before winter, Russian occupiers completely destroyed all vital infrastructure,” adding that “all important facilities in the city and region were mined.”

He continued: “There is no electricity, no communication, no internet and no television” in Kherson, adding: “The occupiers have deliberately destroyed everything.”

And Zelenskyy added: “This means the Russian flag – complete destruction”, and promised a return to normal life.

And Ukraine’s electricity company Ukrinyergo announced earlier Monday that Russia had destroyed a major power plant in Kherson before its troops withdrew the city and the right bank of the Dnieper last week.

“The power plant, which provided electricity to the entire right bank of the Kherson region, as well as a large part of the Mykolaiv region, has actually been destroyed,” the company’s president Volodymyr Kudretsky wrote on Facebook, adding that this was one of the ” Results of the occupiers’ fear of their flight”.

The forced withdrawal of Russian forces in the face of the Ukrainian counterattack was a setback for President Vladimir Putin, who ordered 300,000 reservists to be mobilized in September.

During his visit to Kherson, the Ukrainian President viewed the city’s liberation as “the beginning of the end of the war”.

Kherson was the first major Ukrainian city to fall to the Russians after the invasion began in late February.

In recent weeks, the Russian military has launched multiple rocket attacks and suicide bombings against Ukraine’s energy supply infrastructure.
